Featured on Microfilmmaker!

July 3, 2008

You may have heard me mention my friends over at Microfilmmaker Magazine before in some previous post, say announcing their review of my last film, or something like that. Well, they’ve come through for me and the low-budget filmmaking community again and published an article I wrote about self-promotion and distribution in the DIY, low-/no-budget filmmaking arena in their most recent July issue.

The magazine is a great resource for all kinds of things from simple DIY instructions to cheap or free music for your film projects, reviews of films to reviews of software tools and packages, as well as articles by people working (and playing) in the industry. Check it out, it’s a great resource, and they happen to like my stuff so far, so obviously, they’re good in my book :P.


Stop The Violence film Complete!

February 21, 2008

As some of you may know, I was involved with the cross-country-collaborative effort for the Stop The Violence documentary film. The film was contributed to not only by AnimiVirtus Productions (me), but also Neighborhood Studios, a group based in Ohio. The film was basically a series of interviews with students, teachers, parents and other high school staff about the issue of school and teen violence and aggression, and essentially coalesced into a 20-minute film from two different parts of the country with one core message: Stop The Violence. Take a look at the film below, and please add it to your DIGG, StumbleUpon, and collections to help us raise awareness about our cause and the effort we’re fighting for. Thanks for your support!

Showcase: The Armchair Chronicles

November 2, 2007

Sorry there hasn’t been an update in quite a while, though IndyMogul, IzzyVideo and Video Copilot have all come out with some new videos that are pretty cool.  This update, however is not only a showcase of new work but of new work by a member of AnimiVirtus Productions.  Elliot, a co-founder of the group, has begun a blog about comic arts and his in-development series titled “The Armchair Chronicles.”  It’s essentially an artistic endeavor into the battle of good and evil that permeates… well, everything.  There’s only one post for now, but it’s an interesting peek at what’s to come, as well as the process of the creative mind behind the series.  Check out his post here and learn more him and the blog as the post count increases.



Send in your films!

September 6, 2007

The good guys over at have made an offer you can’t refuse! Hah, how’d ya like that movie quote? However, this one isn’t “Send in your films or we’ll put a gun to your head,” this is a generous offer from the guys at the very helpful e-zine to watch, review, and fully critique your films in depth and then put them on the magazine. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Videomaker does this too,” well that’s what I thought. And you’d be right. But… they don’t feature full-length films, and if they critiqued them they wouldn’t feature them on their vidcast because of time constraints. This e-zine can link to your site, review your film, and feature it in their magazine, because they don’t have a vidcast with a time cap. So you get all the coverage you want with plugs galore, all because you made the deal. So, get to it, filmmakers! The submitting page is here and it’s open to anyone. What are you waiting for!?

Here’s what Jeremy Hanke of Microfilmmaer says: it’s “a free, in-depth critique to help you become a better filmmaker that’s written by actual filmmakers! *smile*” Gotta love the smile! “Yes indeed. Incidentally, we do both feature length films and shorts.”

Also, if you come back later on with a film but can’t find the link to the site, it’s in the Blogroll on the right.
